Shortcuts Adobe Photoshop for MacOS

Hot keys for Adobe Photoshop CC allow you not only to increase productivity and work faster, but also to focus on really important work, when, for example, you need to work continuously with a picture and there is no possibility to switch to the menu. In this case, the shortcut combinations help out great. In Adobe Photoshop SS in the menu, opposite each team, spelled shortcuts. Calling shortcuts works in combination with English letters on any layout. The main modifiers are Ctrl, Shift and Alt. We collected all the combinations available in Photoshop, divided them into categories for convenience. Determine what actions you perform most often, remember the list of hot keys, and work faster and better.
